Want to Read (Part 1, A's)

Like the button? So do I! LOL. I found a lot of these cool quotes and picture buttons on Facebook. ;)
Hey everyone, welcome to my newest post idea! This is the kick off for a 26 part list of books I want to read! I'm thinking I'll probably spread the posts out over quiet a few weeks, instead of just doing a post a day. Maybe Sunday (since that's when I did the first post) and Friday? I've already got Tuesdays and Wednesdays taken every week, and the other days look a bit lonely.... Either way, I'll figure it out later on. Until then, just read the list and enjoy! I'm curious to see if others have read any on my 'Want to Read' list, or if these books are also on YOUR list of books to find. Keep in mind, my 'Want to Read' list, as of Today (7/19/09) is roughly 2070 books. Yeah, that's a lot of books! And in order to keep track of them, I'm going to go in alphabetical order. Part One, which you are currently reading, will be the A's, and next day when I get the B's ready, that will be Part 2, et cetera... Simple, right? Yeah, unless you're the one typing them all, with authors (since I know it's easier to find them and remember if you've read them if you have the author listed next to it), and even links to every book on B&N. It's a lot of work, but I'm willing to do it. ;) And if you see any typos or spelling errors (especially in the author's names), I'm terribly sorry. So, without further ado, here's my list of A's. Enjoy! And feel free to comment, whether you've read them or not, I'd like to know your thoughts on the books! Oh, one last note: If the title starts with 'The', I'm just lumping it into which ever post that the second word on the title starts with. For example, 'The Accidental Demon Slayer' would be posted under the A's for 'Accidental'. Okay? Now here's the list! 1. Abandon by Jillian Hunter 2. About a Dragon by G.A. Aiken 3. Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund 4. The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox 5. The Accidental Vampire by Lynsay Sands 6. Across a Moonlit Sea by Marsha Canham 7. Across a Wild Sea by Sasha Lord 8. Adventures of a Scottish Heiress by Cathy Maxwell 9. After Dark by Jayne Castle 10. After Glow by Jayne Castle 11. After Innocence by Brenda Joyce 12. After Midnight by Teresa Medeiros 13. After the Kiss by Karen Ranney 14. The Agreement by Constance O'Banyon 15. All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks 16. All Men are Rogues by Sari Robins 17. All Things Beautiful by Cathy Maxwell 18. All Through the Night by Connie Brockway 19. Almost a Gentleman by Pam Rosenthal 20. Almost Heaven by Judith McNaught 21. Along Came a Spider by James Patterson 22. Always by Jude Deveraux 23. Always in My Dreams by Jo Goodman 24. The Amulet by Beth Nancy-Lawter 25. Angel in My Bed by Melody Thomas 26. Angel Rogue by Mary Jo Putney 27. Angel's Blood by Nalini Singh 28. Another Chance to Dream by Lynn Kurland 29. As an Earl Desires by Lorraine Heath 30. As Luck Would Have It by Alissa Johnson 31.

Avalon High: Homecoming by Meg Cabot 42. Awaiting the Fire by Donna Lea Simpson 43. Awaiting the Moon by Donna Lea Simpson 44. Awaiting the Night by Donna Lea Simpson 45. Awaken Me Darkly by Gena Showalter 46. Awaken, My Love by Robin Schone 47. The Awakening by Shannon Drake 48. The Awakening by Jude Deveraux 49. Awakenings by Saranne Dawson Remember, these are books that I have tagged as 'Want to Read' on my LT account, NOT books that I have read, nor books that are in my To Be Read pile right now. So, if you know of any that you think I should put on here, leave a comment, but keep in mind, I may have already read that particular book OR it's in my TBR pile, in which case I wouldn't put it on this list. Unfortuantely, more than a few of those books above are currently out of print, so I'll either have to hope that the publisher decides to do a reissue of them soon or else I'm going to have to start hitting up my library to start searching every library they can for interlibrary loans. Or I'd better start digging through the stacks at my local used book store again. Either way, I don't mind-- that's how I always find even more good books is while searching for another one! Enjoy! Until Next Time, The Book Queen


  1. I've read some of them and have some more on my bookshelf, but maybe I'm too late...

  2. Eva S--
    If I may ask, which ones have you read? And did you enjoy them, or were they just so-so?

  4. I am a huge fan of GA Aiken! You must read About a Dragon :D, and if you haven't read Dragon Actually do read that one first! She is so good!
